Unlikely Duo Converge To Create 8 Remarkable Tracks For Free Download
Taking advantage of the lull between holidays, Asher Roth and Nottz have blessed us with an EP entitled Rawth, which is available for free download from Nottz' label's site, rawkoncept.com/rawthep. In just 8 short tracks, Nottz demonstrates his wide-ranging production talents to match Asher's honest and clever lyrics. Featuring guest appearances from D.A. of Chester French, Rhymefest, and Kardinal Offishall, the album deftly combines the sonic influences, lyrical abilities, and subject matter from a rare mix of talents to create the ideal album.
The Rawth EP will be made into a special limited-edition 7” box set, which will be available in early spring.
Since 1998, some of Virginia-born Nottz' biggest records to date include, Snoop Dogg Ft R.Kelly "That's That," Kanye West Ft Lil Wayne "Barry Bonds," and Scarface Ft Trey Songz "Girl You Know." Adding to those credits, he has collaborated with artists such as Notorious B.I.G, Swizz Beats, The Game, 50 Cent, Dwele, and Murs just to name a few. These past few years he has built fan base and earned his stripes as a respected and talented artist and, on October 19th 2010, he is set to release his self-produced debut, You Need This Music. All of Nottz' hard work has been, in his words, "to take over the world one day with my sound.
Brockway Ent presents: 2011 Canadian Rap Future Superstars
Ottawa, ON - In continuing with their annual holiday tradition, Brockway Entertainment has compiled their 22 favourite Canadian rap tracks of 2010 and packed them all onto one album. The '2011 Canadian Rap Future Superstars' compilation is non-profit initiative aimed at providing exposure for up-and-coming Canadian rap artists. The album can be downloaded and ordered for free from www.BrockwayEnt.com.
The diverse 2011 compilation features 34 Canadian artists, 8 Canadian DJs and 17 Canadian beatmakers, spanning 10 Canadian cities from Halifax, NS to Victoria, BC.
Brockway Entertainment increased its community collaboration in 2010 as Moncton's Nayles provided the album design, and Montreal's Asher Media Relations will be providing publicity assistance again this year. Anyone interested in getting involved with next year's compilation is encouraged to contact troy(at)brockwayent.com
The 2011 track listing features:
DJ Jayceeoh (North America) - GO OFF! feat Scratch (Of the Roots), Skratch Bastid, Shiftee, Hedspin, Dopey, Mat The Alien, Marvel, I-Dee, Spryte, Excel & Wundrkut
The compilation began in 2003 as a handful of burnt CDs made by executive producer Troy Neilson for friends & family during the winter holidays. In 2005, Neilson made extra copies, which were sent to campus radio and other media outlets. Since then, the success of the compilation has continued to grow, while annually topping the campus radio rap charts.
"As an artist, I understand the struggle", states Neilson. "For years I wrote reviews and features via HipHopCanada.com to provide exposure for Canadian rap artists. By 2005 I was starting to run short on time, so I explored other ways to give back to the community. That's when the compilation series really began to take shape."
Artists wishing to be considered for next year's compilation are encouraged to submit their music via SonicBids ( link coming soon ) or by sending full CD to Brockway Ent, PO Box 90014, Ottawa, ON, K1V 1J8.
Brockway Entertainment was impressed by several independent Canadian rap releases in 2010, and is glad to have the opportunity to share with you some of their favourite tracks. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and you enjoy our 2011 choice selections.
